In this post-apocalyptic, genre-bending series, the city of Glendale, California is
populated by marauding gangs of jocks, gamers, the 4-H Club, and other
fearsome tribes who are kicking ass as they fight to survive in the wake of
a nuclear blast (on the night of Homecoming…ugh).
Following an eclectic group of survivors as they navigate this strange and treacherous world, DAYBREAK is part samurai saga, part endearing coming-of-age story, and part Battle Royale. This Generation A series (A for Apocalypse! Get it?) is rated TV MA.
